Your burning questions: answered

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

How do you find wedding DJs?

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

As the bride, I hired DJ Jollity to DJ my wedding reception. He was so courteous, respectful of my time, professional and all around amazing I wouldn't think to hire any other dj for any other event going forward. He had a great playlist and his music selection was perfect for a very mixed crowd. Great transitions. My guests raved about how he seemed to be reading the crowd perfectly. He was the perfect addition to my big day!

Ernie DJ/MC'd my wedding and he was amazing! I had a specific playlist and do not play list and he respected them both while still pleasing all my guests by honoring requests! It went better than I ever could have imagined, he was so friendly, I love him, my guests love him, will definitely be recommending him to my friends and using him for future events. He was so prepared and checked in with me a few times before the wedding day to make sure he knew exactly what I wanted, which was so great. 100% would recommend House of Harlow DJ services.

You were so great and read the crowd well! My guest definitely had a great time. My original DJ cancelled on me one week before the wedding and I was so nervous that I wouldn’t be able to find someone on such short notice during covid. He responded so quickly and professionally! Thank you

Ernie was hands down the best DJ I've ever seen! He was easy and professional to work with, easy to communicate with, extremely responsive, and most importantly, he really got the crowd going and played a variety of fun, approriate music! We received so many compliments on Ernie during and after the wedding, and we can't wait to an opportunity to work with him again! Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

Ernie was friendly and professional from our first meeting. He explained how he does what he does, and showed us video samples of his work. We have used other DJs before, but feel that Ernie is by far the best we've had. He offers top notch entertainment, including lights, a fog machine, and a bubble machine at a cost that is very competitive. We will be using his services again!

Mr. McDowell was very professional and easy to work with. He went out of his way to make sure our event was to our satisfaction. He met with me, asked about our music selection, did the research to make sure he got the music we requested, and kept everyone moving on the dance floor- from age 1-90. During dinner he kept the soft jazz we requested in the background, making the mood even more relaxing and magical. He was awesome! I highly recommend DJ Old Soul!
